Former Student Interview: Brian Landau

I had a lot of fun interviewing Brian Landau of Brian’s Thing. I learned of Brian’s mad sax skills when he was an MBA student in my Marketing on the Internet class at the Paul Merage School of Business at UC Irvine. Nothing pleased me more than the idea of a finance guy who played the sax, so I stayed in touch with Brian and cheered him on over the years as his YouTube audience grew into the tens of thousands – with overall video views into the millions.

BACKGROUND: One of the benefits of having taught for a number of years is that I have ended up with many former students. All of them go on to do great/interesting things and I have been fortunate enough to have remained in touch with some of them. In this “former student interview” series, I feature their accomplishments and struggles so that others may be inspired or possibly even learn from their trials and tribulations. Ultimately, my favorite part of teaching has always been to watch others succeed as a result of my contribution, however small.
